In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus teaches we’re to love and pray for our enemies. Jeff, a recent caller to the radio program, shared his struggle to apply this in a situation where people are harming each other.
In the same sermon, Jesus also teaches we should cut off body parts, give away our possessions, and be perfect like God. Was He being literal, or is the point to try our best and hope God grades on a curve?
In this short video clip, I share that Jesus meant exactly what He said in setting an impossible standard. And once you realize the pressure is off, you’ll see how God’s grace empowers you to love others!
